The premiere episode of 19th edition of The Ultimate Fighter is set to take place following the conclusion of the TUF Nations Finale. Discuss the episode here on Bloody Elbow.

The Ultimate Fighter season 19 is set to debut on Wednesday night following the conclusion of the TUF: Nations Finale. This season features coaches Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn, who will be overseeing a cast that will include middleweights and light-heavyweights.

The two coaches will fight for a third time following the conclusion of the season, as Penn will be looking to get some revenge on Edgar for defeating him twice at lightweight. This will mark Penn's debut at featherweight after a storied career as both a lightweight and a welterweight champion.

One of the more recognizable competitors on the TUF 19 cast is Irish-American fighter Cathal Pendred, who has been touted by fellow Irishman and teammate Conor McGregor as one of the future stars in the UFC's middleweight division. Pendred is a former Cage Warriors welterweight champion and is coming off a TKO win over former UFC competitor Che Mills.

Other notable fighters include Dhiego Lima, who is the younger brother of Bellator welterweight tournament winner Douglas Lima, Eddie Gordon, who trains out of Serre-Long Fight Team, and former Bellator champ Lyman Good.

The first episode will feature the fights to get into the house, and according to UFC President Dana White, there will apparently be a few shocking moments to keep fans entertained.

Watch the debut episode on Fox Sports 1 at 10 PM ET/7 PM PT.
